The farm was bought many years ago for my grandmother, she did many sacrifices to be able to buy it. Thats why the farms name is La Lagrimita (the tear). Now we produce in the farm coffee, but we also have poultry breeding, pork, fruit trees, and other products for the daily living. Now Im 50 years old, Im single and I live in the farm with my father, and one brother.
We separate biodegradable and no-biodegradable wastes. We use biodegradable wastes in the production of red Californian worms. The no biodegradable wastes such as plastic, can, and glass, goes to a grave. Now we are establishing a native forest in the border of the Mina river.
